What ever happened to her???
That's right... she left in the summer of 2009 to have a baby girl.
After a couple months off for recovery from childbirth she was busy getting herself back into shape. It was a lot of work but she managed to impress herself with her regained fitness in 2010. I should know, because I am that blonde girl who used to greet you when you walked into the shop (the one in the picture above).
This year, it's time to help some other moms reach the fitness level they are hoping to achieve this year. Next week I'm starting a core strength and run/walk group in North Austin.
Here's a little bit more information about my awesome new workout group. Although many of the blog readers won't be available to attend my mid-morning workouts I hope you can spread the word to some of your favorite moms around town!
-- Mid Morning Moms --
The Mid Morning Moms workout group is a new North Austin Workout group with the goal of helping stay at home moms get into better shape. We’ll focus on core and running workouts that are geared towards all levels of fitness and incorporate kids (if you choose to bring them along for the workout).
The coached workouts will be held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at parks in North Austin. All workouts will be lead by Michelle Garel, a local triathlete with a Masters in Biomechanics, and mother of Leah.
The group will begin to meet on 1/11/11.
(1) 2 core + run/walk workouts per week lead by Michelle Garel. Workouts will be held at Parks to allow for flexibility to moms who might be bringing their kids. The workouts will be kid friendly; core activities that kids can join, run routes that are baby jogger friendly, relays to share kid watching, etc.
(2) Monthly newsletter which discusses group happenings, tips on ways to stay healthy as a mom, etc
When: Tues & Thurs mornings at 9:30 AM (30-45 min core followed by 30-45 min run).
Where: Tues = Wells Branch Park, Thurs = Northwest Park. Meet at the parking lot, look for the MMM sign.
January 2011 will be used to assess interest in the time and location, as well as the possibility of adding additional workouts, training programs, or nutrition aspects to the group. If there is sufficient interest, the pay structure will most likely switch to a punch card and/or monthly format.
